We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
Participating is August McLaughlin’s Beauty of a Woman Blogfest got me to wondering—why not have a Mark of a Man Blogfest. I loved participating in her blogfest, and I think it’s great that she does it, but I also think maybe this is an idea whose time has come.
There are only three things that motivate a man: his belly, his ego and his libido.
Men are all logic and no emotion.
Grown men don’t cry.
The mark of a real man is washboard abs.
A man’s gotta have broad shoulders and slim hips.
A man’s value is measured in inches.
You’ve heard all these and other trite little statements about men. Do they really describe the male gender? Is there more to a man that this, or is this all there is?
Just as there is a lot more to a woman’s beauty than surgically enhanced boobs, there is more to a man’s worth than penile enlargement, although I’m bombarded all the time with spam about this method or that, surgical or non-surgical, for enlargement. I also see a lot of blogs, movie reviews, etc., judging men based on how their abs ripple.
Are these things really how women rate men? Are these the most important things for a woman to consider in evaluating whether or not a man is worthy of her time?
Do our minds count for anything? Our personality? Our character? Have we entered a youth culture in which only men with young, firm bodies are of value?
It’s your turn to tell us, ladies. Join in the Mark of a Man Blogfest. Write your own blog on the subject and post it on your own site on Friday, March 15th. Be sure to put in a link to my site, so your readers can see the opinions of other writers, too. I’ll list links to all posts entered into the blogfest as long as I get them by noon of Thursday, March 15th. Let me know if you’re entering the blogfest by Wednesday, March 14th.
Your link will be listed on my site in the order in which I receive the notification of your entry. Let’s have some fun with this.
By the way, guys, I’ve addressed this announcement primarily to women, but I’d like to see a healthy number of entries from you, too. Don’t let them have all the fun.
